We pull them, water, pull them again and all we want is a nice clean garden to admire, or a spot to grow wonderful fruits and veggies without seeing another weed taking up valuable space.

White Vinegar has an abundance of acetic acid which kills weeds. using this with a combo of soap can double as a insecticide. just be careful this kills all plants, and use on a dry week with no rain to prevent dilution.
